Heroic report

June 21, 2008

Re "A secret voyage to expose a tragedy," Column One, June 13

Terrific reporting. I'm glad your reporter was not only able to get a moving story but that he was able to avoid arrest, a fate that has been the lot of almost 2,000 political prisoners currently held in Myanmar prisons as documented by Amnesty International. Freedoms that we almost take for granted, such as the ability to travel and report, don't exist there. Sometimes doing journalism borders on heroism.
